Warrior Wolf Women series

Posted in Bizarro Books on March 14, 2010 by carltonmellick

Well, it looks like “Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland” has become a series. I’m writing two prequels and two sequels for it. Three short ones and one long one. The three short ones will be collected into a single volume and released later in the year or early next year. I’ve completed one of the prequels already, “Barbarian Beast Babes of the Badlands” which is about Apple, Talon, and Hyena, plus some new characters. The other prequel I’m writing right now, which will be all about Samurai Hamburglar. The third novella will follow Talon, Slayer, Nova, and the rest of the warrior gang directly after the events of Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland. The long sequel will be a stand alone novel, set several years after WWW and will mostly focus on Pippi and Daniel Togg. It will be called “Pippi of the Apocalypse.”

I’m really excited about writing all of these. I haven’t really been able to get the WWW world out of my head since I wrote the book and it’s been fun to return to it. Plus, I always wanted to write a trilogy.

Bizarro Radio Interview

In person, Jeremy Robert Johnson is the funniest most retarded bizarro writer that I know of, even though his fiction is some of the darkest and most powerful.

I highly recommend listening to this interview with him. It’s pretty hilarious. He is exactly like this every second you’re around him.

Die Kannibalen von Candyland

Posted in Bizarro Books on March 9, 2010 by carltonmellick

Coming soon is the German edition of “Cannibals of Candyland.” It might have a scratch-and-sniff cover. I believe it is available for pre-order. If you speak German you might want to check it out. There will also be an audio edition. Here’s the description.

die kannibalen

Carlton Mellick III schreibt Bizarro Fiction – ein Genre, das er quasi selbst erfunden hat. Doch was ist das? Grob gesagt: Bizarro Fiction ist seltsame Literatur.
Man stelle sich einen bösen Roald Dahl auf Speed vor. Das sagt nicht viel aus? Hmm, vielleicht ahnt man etwas, wenn man einige Titel von CM3 hört: ›Ultra Fuckers‹, ›Electric Jesus Corpse‹, ›The Menstruating Mall‹, ›Teeth and Tongue Landscape‹, ›Adolf in Wonderland‹, ›The Haunted Vagina‹, ›Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland‹, ›The Baby-Jesus Ass-Plug‹.

Wie echte Kult-Filme ist Bizarro Fiction manchmal surreal, manchmal revolutionär, manchmal idiotisch, manchmal blutig, oft derb pornografisch und fast immer radikal abgedreht.

Bizarro Fiction ist wie:

Franz Kafka trifft John Waters
Kinderbücher nach der Apokalypse
Takashi Miike trifft William S. Burroughs
Alice in Wonderland für Erwachsene
Japanisches Kino unter der Regie von David Lynch

Bei Festa sind mehrere Veröffentlichungen in Vorbereitung. Wir starten mit ›Die Kannibalen von Candyland‹ – gedruckt auf rosa Papier und wenn man den Umschlag streichelt, riecht man das Candyland, denn dann duftet es nach Erdbeerbonbons.

Gebunden, Leseband.
Circa 160 Seiten
Originaltitel: The Cannibals of Candyland
Übersetzung: Michael Plogmann

Writing Marathon

Posted in Bizarro Books on March 1, 2010 by carltonmellick

Today I am preparing notes to start a three day marathon at the Sylvia Beach Hotel. I’ll be writing a very short prequel to “Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland.” It is called “Barbarian Beast Babes of the Badlands.” I’m pretty sure it’s the worst title I’ve ever come up with. I came up with it as a joke but everyone I mentioned it to said that the title is just way to stupid not to use.

I’m pretty sure it will be a lot like Warrior Wolf Women, but with more of a Heavy Metal comics or USA “Up All Night” feel to it. For those of you who read WWW, this one will focus mostly on the background characters Hyena and Apple, but it will also have Talon and some new characters. I’m excited to write it.
